When Tanya and Rosie arrive at the island, they get off the boat and walk up the pier. They break into song with Donna (who is walking towards them) but as the shot keeps changing, the two old men standing on the pier disappear and re-appear every time the camera changes.
After the final scene of the movie Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and Julie Walters appear on a sound stage in matching 1970s glam-rock costumes and sing "Dancing Queen". When they finish Meryl 'asks' the audience if they want an encore. The three ladies are then joined by Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard who are similarly attired. Along with Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper, they provide a rendition of "Waterloo" as the main credits roll.
The song (and scene that accompanied the song), "The Name of The Game", was removed from the film, but reinstated as a special feature in the DVD release.
